This work involves a significant upgrade to our Waste Water Treatment Works in Ellon.

What does the work involve?

All work will take place within the boundary of the existing treatment works site.

This work is needed to ensure that we can meet the future needs of the local area and continue to protect the environment.

Additional information about the work

These works are being carried out by our alliance partner Efficient Service Delivery (ESD) and the works are expected to be completed by Spring 2021.

The work has been planned in this way to allow us to maintain the full operation of the current Waste Water Treatment Works whilst the upgrade work takes place.
